Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)

Evergreen City of India

Situated among a collection of low hills that lead up to the coastline, state capital Thiruvananthapuram acts as a base for exploration of the southern tip of the country. With a wealth of popular beaches and resort towns in the surrounding area, Thiruvananthapuram tourism largely revolves around a number of day trips to the coast, yet the urban scene has plenty to offer as well. Colonial British architecture and storied temples remains particularly cherished aspects of the fairly modest city center, while the restaurants, bars, and bakeries offer a laid-back account of life down south. Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum) is in Thiruvananthapuram District. Customize your holiday with our India road trip planning tool to create an adventure that suits you.

Where to stay in Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum)
